Abstracts

Standard

A practical basis is provided for the selection of voltage and current tests to be applied in evaluating the surge withstand capability of equipment connected to utility power circuits, primarily in residential, commercial, and light industrial applications. The recommended practice covers the origin of surge voltages, rate of occurrence and voltage levels in unprotected circuits, waveshapes of representative surge voltages, energy, and source and impedance. Three locations categories are defined according to their relative position from the building service entrance. For each category, representative waveforms of surge voltages and surge currents are described, organized in two recommended 'standard waveforms' and three suggested 'additional waveforms.'.<>

C62.41-1980 - IEEE Guide for Surge Voltages in Low-Voltage Ac Power Circuits
January 1, 1981 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This IEEE guide for surge voltages in LV AC power circuits addresses circuits with rated voltages up to 277 V line to ground. The main purpose of the guide is to look at the environment in which the surge voltages occur. Waveshapes and energy content are established for various different locations.<...
